Holding your head high, and being the best you know you can
be when life seems to fall apart at your feet, facing each difficulty with
the confidence that time will bring you better tomorrows, and never
giving up, means confidence.
—Author unknown
It’s not from the known, but the unknown that creativity and inventiveness are born. Turn away from the predictable, cliché, and reliable. Brave the void where the darkness is greatest. Trust the quiet, find the stillness, feel the calm. Then steadily think, speak, and move as if you were led. Behave as if your vision were clear. Anticipate the emotional rush that will come with your triumph. And as if by magic, as you raise your pen to write, you’ll find the words have already been summoned, flooded in light that was there all along, in a world that has just as anxiously anticipated your arrival. 

Just don’t let them worship you.

Challenges and opportunities go hand in hand. —Tuchy Palmieri
Opportunities do not just come, they are attracted —Tuchy Palmieri

Every man has his challenge, but not every man knows what his challenge is. —Tuchy Palmieri
We are all going to die. How we die is a mystery—how we live is the challenge. —Susie Palmieri
Often one’s crisis is another’s opportunity.
Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work so most people don’t recognize them.
Looking for the hidden opportunities is worthwhile after one has exhausted the opportunities that lay before him.
The wise man finds opportunities rather than waiting for them to come to him.
Looking for the hidden opportunities is worthwhile after one has exhausted the opportunities that lay before him.
I will live it up today, knowing that tomorrow I may not be given the opportunity. —Tuchy Palmieri
Just as you are grateful you did not answer all those knocks of opportunity, be grateful that god did not answer all your prayers.
Luck is when opportunity knocks, and you answer.
We are all born rich and all born poor—rich in opportunity and poor in experience.
With every change is an opportunity to grow.
An opportunity that does not come at the right time is not an opportunity, but a problem disguised as an opportunity. —Tuchy Palmieri
Some people are waiting for the window of opportunity to come to them, rather than seek to find the window.
The door of opportunity is always open all one need to do is to walk through it.
Four things that never return—a spoken word, a sped arrow, the past, and a lost opportunity.—Jim Reilly and others
Hard work and persistence open the window of opportunity.
Fear is but an opportunity to be courageous.
